Like I've said & to make another analogy, you have been told what is in the library. If you don't want to actually make the effort to go there and read, that's fine. But standing outside the library and saying what is in it is baseless without actually been inside and read seems like a waste of your time.TRC wrote:These are just more claims.

I am not making that claim. Furthermore, I didn't make the advice to apply Right Speech. Buddha did.So let’s look at what we have here: We have one Buddhist tradition among many claiming to have the most relevant teachings and the fastest way to enlightenment. Do people not see that particularly in terms of Buddhadharma, that this is extremely arrogant and pejorative? This is very interesting in light of advising others to apply right speech!
Exactly so. Each Buddhist school starts with their own point of view. To understand the very basics of such views is crucial to understanding anything further that's being talked about. Without that understanding, it can all sound like so much babbling arrogance, nonsense or whatnot. But if one stops to think about it, does anyone really think another person would waste their time studying babbling arrogance and nonsense if they felt something better was available?JKhedrup wrote:However, from the headline of a thread, we can see what is written is an answer, from a Vajrayana POV, to a very specific question.
